His "staggering technical prowess, sense of command and depth of expression" wowed The Washington Post. The New York Times declared him a "powerhouse." Now, after becoming the first American to medal at the International Tchaikovsky Competition (the Olympic Games of classical music) in a quarter century, piano prodigy George Li joins the Fairfax Symphony Orchestra for Beethoven and Mozart Masterpieces. Conducted by maestro Christopher Zimmerman, this special program includes Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1 and Mozart's Jupiter Symphony. Arrive an hour early and join David Ginder, WETA-FM's early-morning host, for a pre-concert interview with Zimmerman and this most remarkable young pianist at George Mason University's Center for the Arts.
